Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's Spring Series rolls on!

On this episode, Elan and Brian take a quick tour through the latest hockey happenings in the NHL playoffs and the IIHF Men's World Championships before continuing with their 2018-19 NHL Fantasy Audio Almanac Epilogue. After patting themselves on the back last week for the projections they got right that others didn't, this week they are determined to dig into the players whose point totals they underestimated in 2018-19, and to learn lessons accordingly for when they're making their next set of projections.

No. 231 - Couture Club

Hello, hello, hello! It's another spring series edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!

In this show's first half, Elan and Brian are inspired by the happenings of the Stanley Cup Playoffs' second round to discuss the rich irony of the Hurricanes goaltending, the pumpkin-ing of the Islanders goaltending, and the futures of a couple forwards on each team who had standout seasons for reasons both good and bad. They also try to nip any speculation on the St. Louis Blues' PP1 quarterback in the bud, give appropriate praise to one established and one up-and-coming Star, speculate on the potential of a repeat situation in the Bruins' crease next year, and wonder whether a Predators stud is actually that.

In the second half, we kick off our Almanac review and self-evaluation, where we look back at our projections to celebrate the hits and understand and learn from the misses. To begin, we go easy on ourselves, looking at the player point projections on which we were furthest apart from other projectors, but ended up being right about. Don't worry... we'll hold ourselves fully accountable for the ones we got wrong in the offseason episodes to come.

This episode was prepared with great help from @fantasyref, who sent us all their data on how we did on our projections, as well as how our projections stacked up to all the others. Check out their site and this year's rankings!

And finally.. we announced on this episode that the Keeping Karlsson Audio Almanac will be returning for the 2019-20 season! You can pre-order yours at keepingkarlsson.com/almanac. (If you didn't listen to the 2018-19 Almanac and want to check it out, it's now available on a pay-what-you-want basis.)

Players discussed on this episode include Petr Mrazek, Curtis McElhinney, Robin Lehner, Jaccob Slavin, Anders Lee, Brock Nelson, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, Timo Meier, Vince Dunn, Alex Pietrangelo, Tyler Seguin, Roope Hintz, Tuukka Rask, Jaroslav Halak, Filip Forsberg, Andreas Athanasiou, Jakub Vrana, Tom Wilson, Jon Carlson, Nathan MacKinnon, Evgeni Dadonov, Jack Eichel and more.
